I’m struggling to find a nice charcoal colour for my kitchen cabinets.
I enlisted the services of an interior designer however the two greys she suggested, grey cabin and grey master (both dulux) are to brown.
Ive got sample pots and painted the colour on large 900x600 plywood sheets to see what they look like in the house.
Any suggestions for dark grey, my kitchen guy is suggesting monument, I’ve looked at Oolong.
Bench and splash back will be a Carrara classic quartz.
Hi gogo65....yes designers colours were on the brown side, nice colours, but not charcoal.
Way below is 2 I have selected for you, more to the charcoals.
Let me know what you think.
My selection for you......
What did you think gogo56?
We decided to go with Domino we will have hints of domino throughout the house. Our kitchen is in production and hoping will look similar to this!

My new computer has arrived and is ready to be hooked up.
I'm picking it up this afternoon after work!! Super happy.
Sorry everyone, I have found it so hard to work with the laptop I bought as a stand in.
It's slow and the colour is awful!
I'll be back as soon as I get sorted and up and running again.

Hi Michelle, thank you for your sharing your advice. I am hoping you may be able to assist. I live in a high set home in North Queensland, with exterior hardiplank walls, new underside cladding to be Colorbond Trimdeck in Surfmist and trims in Basalt. I am experiencing difficulty matching the exterior Dulux paint to Colorbond Surfmist. I have painted a few boards and a section of the current Shadowline (which is to be removed) with sample pots of Colorbond Surfmist and half strength Surfmist, and they are vastly darker than a sheet of Colorbond Surfmist. I am now considering a quarter strength Surfmist sample pot. My final question is, should I match the exterior steps to the exterior walls and trim? I have no deck or verandah, so you step out of the house (polished floors) directly onto the stairs. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hi Michelle, I hope you are well and I was hoping you can help me with my colour selections please. I do have questions around Exterior and Interior colours.
I will start with Kitchen. We are leaning towards London Grey Ceaserstone for the Island and bench top with a window splash back. We cant decide if we should keep the Overhead and underbench cupboards - Light grey/blue tone or hazelnut or any other colour.
Trying to keep light blue/grey theme for wall colors.
Our kitchen would look like something as below and we would be going with porcelain tiles.
Appreciate your assistance !!
I am after the same Kitchen Industrial style Pendent lights. I cant find the exact ones anyware. Would you know where I can get these from ?

Hi Michelle. We have chosen Haymes Moon and Stars paint for our new house. Now I am unsure how it will look since there are not many pictures on internet. After warm grey walls but don't want it to look too dark at night. Wondering if should have gone with Aura instead.

I am looking to do a grey/off white front facade with a feature brick (Vintage Red, tumbled - Brikmakers), however there are restrictions within my estate.
I have currently picked Basalt and Vanilla Quake for my colours, Basalt being the roof, downpipes, facade, front door and a small part of the front render - rest will be Vanilla Quake. One front pillar will be in 1c Vintage red tumbled brick w/ white mortar.
Issue being that it is likely that my estate has selected 4 colours for the roof, and tbh I am not a fan of any of them. I am going to try to submit my plans as is and see if they approve it (there is a clause that they might approve outside these guidelines at their discretion) however I need to plan if they do not.
The roof colours they suggest are Surfmist, Dune, Evening Haze and Windspray - all of which have green/yellow undertones. Is there any colours you could suggest that would give me a similar look that could incorporate one of these colorbond colours instead?

Sorry, answered based on the title, and missed the "Birch". "Birch White" looks like it might best be complemented by standard heritage colours, manor red and forest…
